Subject Re: running ant from MSDEV

I'm not in a position to dictate to my users what they can or cannot
do. They currently use VisualStudio. We want a drop in replacement
which satisfies both developers and build server requirements. If ANT
can't satisfy this, or there is a specific philosophy which forbids
the use of ANT in this manner, then I will reccommend we go elsewhere
for our build system tools.

The other IDEs are Xcode and CodeWarrior. How stands ANT with them?
